Project Report | Feb 28, 2023
Thank you from TELL: Supporting Survivors of Abuse

By Cole Garrett | Development Manager

 

As we approach International Women's Day, we would like to thank you for your generous support of TELL and of this project to support women experiencing domestic abuse in Japan.

Sexual harassment and other forms of violence against women and girls of all ages continue to occur on streets, in public spaces, and online, with the number escalating over the last few years as a result of the pandemic. In 2021, the number of reports to the Japanese police for physical and sexual violence, stalking, and image based abuse (such as revenge porn) all increased to their highest level on record. NPO Colabo supporting young women and teenage girls in the Tokyo area found the number of young women needing housing or financial support in the last few years has increased significantly since the pandemic as many lost their part-time jobs and are unable or don't feel safe to be at home.

Supporting survivors of domestic abuse is a key part of TELL's mission and a pillar of what we do in our Lifeline. All of our Support Worker volunteers are trained to provide support for individuals experiencing Intimate Partner Violence, and we are proud of the work that we do to provide that support. 

In 2022, the TELL Lifeline handled more than 8,300 chats and call from users in need. Of these connections, 390 were about an abusive relationship, and 44 of these connections were providing direct support for someone who experienced rape or sexual assault. 

Your donation has gone to making this possible, and thanks to you we have raised more than $14,000 to support the work that we do. Thank you for your generosity and know that your contribution is changing lives.

This year is TELL's 50th Anniversary and marks an important milestone in our history. For 50 years, a volunteer has been there, everyday, here to listen. We will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary throughout the year and encourage you to join us. Our first celebration event will be held on April 1st at the Italian Embassy, and you can get your tickets today at tellevents.org.

Thank you again for supporting TELL. Your contribution truly makes a difference.
